The Butterfly Lover


The original butterfly border and notebook style image was obtained from this source. However, the poem is written by me, only for Thursday Poetry Rally, Week 27 and copyrights for the words stay solely with me.


Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  2. I love butterflies,
    your words combine with the image,
    perfect beauty in poetry and image…

    admirable poem!
    Thank you for being super considerate, persistent, and intelligent!

    your participation is appreciated. šŸ˜‰

        • hehe šŸ˜€ thanks again Ji šŸ™‚

          next time, rather than saying “participation is appreciated”, why don’t u say, “Hey Leo, rally is set to begin. get your poem up n get to it real quick!”? šŸ˜‰

          n I’ll get into my running shoes n scoot to the rally like a snail šŸ˜€ lol.

  3. I’m no fan of Butterflies. šŸ˜›

    Looks like this Butterfly is flirting and proposing to all the flowers… šŸ˜‰

    Beautiful flirtatious scene you have created šŸ™‚

  4. The image of the butterfly against the flirtatious,fluttering, whimsical words of this poem is genius. Love feels this way with butterflies in one’s stomach especially when a marriage proposal is at hand.

    Well done!

  5. Very unique style of showcasing your poem- Very unique. The verse is oh-so-romantic.. One only needs to carry the butterfly and present it to the lady..
    šŸ™‚

  6. The layout is super cute. I agree with Olivia that this can be relatable to one person proposing to another, but do enjoy the freshness of your poem being about a butterfly and a flower. Love transcends all.

  7. I usually don’t like the use of thee and thy, however for this poem it fits. I suppose the very first line “fair blossom” sets the period of the language and you carried it through. Great poem. Enjoyed reading it.

    • hi Mair šŸ™‚ glad u liked it.. no no, it wasn’t a rehearsal for a proposal šŸ˜€ it was actually the butterfly proposing to the blossom.. though I might propose someone in the future this way šŸ™‚

  8. Beautifully done, Leo! I had a hard time deciding which wing to read first, but it works both ways … whether by accident or good planning, the results are marvelous! šŸ™‚
